Matt Barnes now dating Rihanna

Matt Barnes

Rihanna sure loves her ballers, and Matt Barnes happily fits into that category.

The Memphis Grizzlies wing player separated from wife Gloria Govan last fall and is in the process of getting a divorce. TMZ reports that Barnes is now going out with Rihanna and has been on two dates with the singer. Govan seems cool with Barnes’ dating life, even joking that Rihanna better hook her up with concert tickets.

Even though Barnes is separated from Govan, he had some beef with Colin Kaepernick, supposedly over his ex, though Gloria denies ever hooking up with the 49ers QB. Barnes also has had a thing for Rihanna for a while. He made her his WCW on Instagram a few months ago, and that comes after flirting with her over Twitter years ago.

As for Rihanna, well, she has messed with JR Smith in the past, made a football player her #WCW and dated Padres OF Matt Kemp. Joel Embiid should probably hit up Barnes to find out what the secret is to RiRi’s heart.
